Congresswoman Carol Miller and Congressman Jodey Arrington write in RealClearEnergy on Biden’s energy policies.
- The “everything but” energy strategy from the Biden administration that demonizes domestic fossil fuel production has emboldened Putin’s war in Ukraine.
- U.S. energy is dramatically cleaner than Russia’s, with some estimates suggesting that global greenhouse gas emissions would fall by 72 million metric tons per year if American fuel replaced Russia’s in Europe.
- Exporting American energy makes environmental and geopolitical sense. The Biden administration should reduce barriers to encourage domestic production of energy to thwart Putin’s agenda.
“President Biden must recognize that his decimation of American energy opened the door for Russia’s ongoing aggression, diminished our leverage in negotiations, and resulted in a missed opportunity in meeting Europe’s energy demands.
